With DeSL PLM, "No More Confusing Spreadsheets" for elope

elope Inc., a Colorado-based wholesale company specializing in high-quality wearables, has gone live with DeSL's PLM solution and is already realizing significant benefits from the implementation.

elope was established in 1993 by founders Kevin and Keith Johnson. The company expanded in 2001 into a new factory facility in China with a key focus on socially responsible business practices and dedication to fair trade. In 2012, elope embarked on a PLM project to help support the continued growth of the company and selected DeSL following a comprehensive vendor evaluation process.

Carolye Asfahl, COO, elope said, "elope is already seeing major improvements from our DeSL implementation. We wanted one system visible to all departments, including our production team overseas, to increase our work efficiency and information consistency. A positive outcome I did not expect was how quickly our overseas teams are adopting the system.

"PLM is especially helping with our sample management process which previously required many people and different spreadsheets," Asfahl continued. "There were many opportunities to miscommunicate and confuse the situation on samples. Now, with DeSL's PLM module, we are seeing huge improvements, no confusing spreadsheets, and our overseas team is even driving us to be better users of the system."

DeSL is a global company delivering integrated web based solutions for the fashion, apparel, textile and footwear sectors.
